So we read the latest Megatokyo. And we say to ourselves, “Archie Meets the Punisher? This I must see.” So we browse random forum threads on the subject. Damned if it ain’t true. But then we dug deeper. And we were horrified by what we found. I mean, you know, at some point, words fail. These are worth browsing through for a laugh. And you know, it’s not like comic book reading was at all a part of my childhood, here, and it’s not like I read anything vaguely like them except MT and Penny Arcade, but yeah. I dunno. I just dunno.

Square drive screws are teh evil. Square drive screws that strip out faster than $2 hookers are so fantastical evil I can’t believe it. Why do they make them? We can only guess. That will be all. [edit] The real kicker here is, these are stainless steel screws that cost some ludicrous amount per screw, which we have to use because the new style of treated lumber corrodes normal screws like butter. Aeeyah. [/edit]

This is like the funniest thing I’ve read in weeks. Maybe ever. I’m having AoK flashbacks. [edit – pasting whole thing here just ’cause] If World War Two had been an RTS game, it would have gone a little something like this…. *Hitler[AoE] has joined the game.* *Eisenhower has joined the game.* *paTTon has joined the game.* *Churchill has joined the game.* *benny-tow has joined the game.* *T0J0 has joined the game.* *Roosevelt has joined the game.* *Stalin has joined the game.* *deGaulle has joined the game.* Roosevelt: hey sup T0J0: y0 Stalin: hi Churchill: hi Hitler[AoE]: cool, i start with panzer tanks! paTTon: lol more like panzy tanks T0JO: lol Roosevelt: o this fockin sucks i got a depression!

With the obligatory homages to Megatokyo and my desktop. Also known as “Wai~ for detergent!” Yes, you pretty much had to be there. In fact, I’m sure that unless you’re Whir and maybe Cole, this entry will totally make no sense to you. Suffer. So, as long time readers will know, I am addicted to Megatokyo. Despite its making a ton of references to assorted manga/anime, I have never felt overly compelled to pick any of it up. Possibly I fear turning into the second coming of Whir the Anime Zombie. But then Fred’s like “I’m going to do a Haibane Renmei omake after Chapter 6 is done!” After a page or two of me going “Dude, this owns. I […]

*maniacal cackling* So we like, live and stuff again. This is good. I’ve gone ahead and blogged what I had to blog and backdated it. The easiest way to see it all is to just go to the July archives page, and read all of it. I’ll talk about even more stuff later, when I decide what to say.

So, being bored with all other forms of entertainment lately, I have returned to that old standby, Civ 3. I’ve been playing this same game pretty much every day since the 12th, and oh what a game it is. Emperor, World map, 10 civs, historical starting locations. I’m America, and I own pretty much the pre-Mexican War boundries of the US, plus California, plus all of Canada except BC and Ontario. Aztecs have Mexico, Central America, the Pacific Northwest, BC, Alaska, and Ontario. Maya owns all of South America. There are assorted other civs over in Eurasia/Africa, including the Vikings, Babylon, the Hittites, the Mongols, and Spain. The Dutch are OCCing it off the coast of Africa, and the Romans […]

Picture, if you will, a stadium full of small forest animals. They’re all doing the whole stomp stomp clap “We will, we will rock you!” thing. Rabbit chearleaders with pom-poms, the whole bit. I hold, in my hand, or did until I put it down to type, my Miller Analogies Test score report. Percentile for Intended Major: 96 Percentile for Total Group: 95 I am now officially one of the Smart People again. Woot. Next stop, Praxis II Social Studies exams. 7:30 in the morning on the 6th, in Monmouth, which is an hour and a half away. Most nontriumphant. Incidentally, nothing about emus appeared anywhere on the score report.

This whole Alsherok being down thing has really sucked, not in the least because I’ve lost both the blog and email, and I’m kind of wondering where the hell my MAT scores are. The application process for grad school is kinda freaking me out. It’s hard, and it’s bloody expensive – I just spent $205 on a couple Praxis tests, and there’s like 3 more I have to take before it’s over. And if I fuck this up, well, I’m not sure what happens then. It’s scary. Beyond that, this is the first time since I was in Europe that I’ve been typing up entries beforehand and posting them later. I still have a big text file with all my […]

So, I have this random phone conversation with Cole. And I get off the phone, and my first thought was “Wow, how totally last century was THAT?” Yay IM.
